The dark middle act
Reviewed in the United States on January 8, 2020
This is the big turning-point in the bigger story where all the s**t hits the fan, and suddenly everything is much, much worse for everyone, and you're left wondering how it can all come back from this. PREACHER is one of the great archetypal stories of our age, and to compare this volume with another of those, this one is pretty much the EMPIRE STRIKES BACK of PREACHER. Jesse's cut off from the group, Tulip is a mess, and Cassidy - priorly everyone's favorite lovable rogue comic-relief character - suddenly becomes a hell of a lot less likable, and more three-dimensional and interesting as a result (basically the best thing you can do to a character you've used to win your readers over, IMO). Great stuff!
